${session.getAttribute("locale")} 5 Ladle eye detection using multi-variate image analysis 1m diameter) because of this problem. It is clear that control of spout or ladle eye size is important in operating a ladle operation, particularly, when critical grades of steels are being produced. Though, ladle or spout eye phenomena are important to modern ladle operation, there have been relatively few studies on the subject. This area has recently been a focus of study at McMaster University. This work originally focused on developing a semi-empirical prediction for ladle eye size, as function of flow rate and geometry. This stimulated the authors to design a new system for on line detection of ladle eyes. This work will also be described in this paper.]]> Wed 18 Mar 2015 06:05:58 EST ]]>
